I have an '03 197 and had the same problem recently. First, check the paddle wheel to make sure someone didn't put the dummy plug in the boat for loading. If the paddle wheel is in place then check the connections which should be in the bilge near the paddle wheel (on my boat it is just at the edge of the floor opening in front of the engine near the pylon). My connections were tight but one wire was corroded off- fixing that wire gave my one speedometer back however the other one is broken. I switched the one that didn't work to the other side and it still didn't work so I had two separate issues.

I have an 02 X7 and had that problem recently. My paddle wheel was jammed. There are little plastic ears that protect the paddle wheel. Evidently, I must have bent one on the trailer bunk and it jammed the wheel. I'd check there first, then start tracing back from there. Good Luck!
